Every now and then you may have to block specific third parties from accessing your sites. There are plenty of automatic bots that crawl the Internet, for instance, and produce fake visits and site traffic. There's also spammers who leave links to shady Internet sites as comments to blog articles. Such things may greatly undermine your work, because nobody likes to visit a website with tons of fake comments, also the increased website traffic from both spammers and bots could create high load on the server in which your website is hosted, that could result in your site not working correctly. One of the best solutions in cases like this is to block the IPs that create the fake traffic, so as to make certain that the visits to your site are authentic.
